Wanna Have Drinks With Penguins? You Actually Can At This Ikebukuro, Tokyo Bar!

You might have heard of cat or owl cafes in Tokyo, but have you ever heard of a penguin bar? If you haven't, you're not alone. The reason is that there is only one of them in Tokyo (or perhaps the world?). The bar called Pengin No Iru Bar is located in Ikebukuro. Here is more on this unique place!

Penguin Bar

The name is "Pengin No Iru Bar" which literally translates to "the bar where there are penguins". The concept is to provide a place where people can drink, eat and watch penguins in a quiet bar-like atmosphere. The animals are said to be well taken care of and provided with an adequately large living space. Apparently, watching them has a therapeutic calming effect.
There is a large basin right against the window.

It's interesting to see the interactions among the penguins! These two are a couple.
Curious penguins often stare at customers through the windows.


There is more to this place than just penguins though! The place serves great drinks and food too.


Burgers are really tasty here! You can have this one for 1,100 yen.
Many couples order this tomato salad! Penguin bar is a good date spot.
There is a popular course called the Penguin plan that is a 5-course meal. You get a salad, roast beef, three types of fried food, today's pizza and seasonal pasta. And you get a 2-hours off all-you-can-drink drinks!


The Penguin Bar has a very long list of cocktail drink, beer, wine and whisky, sake, highball and ume liquor list to order from. Prices are around 600 yen to 1,200 yen. What you should really try here though are the frozen cocktails!
You can get a frozen Daiquiri, mango or strawberry cocktail for 1,000 to 1,200 yen.
The most popular frozen drink, however, is the bar's original cocktail!


At a 5 minute walk from Ikebukuro Station's West Exit.
